I want the remote more for the ability to be able to clearly hear the radio from the cockpit than anything else. I considered a hand-held, but that doesn't give you the range of the fixed radio, with its antenna advantage; you have to deal with re-charging, and there's always the distinct possibility of the radio going ker-plunk. Yeah, I know: They allegedly float. Fat lot of good that'll do you in heavy air and seas. Hell, just retrieving a cap or a PFD is tricky enough, but a small, hand-held radio? No thanks.
